Best Bra for Big Breasts

best-bra-for-big-breasts-headerFind Support That Feels Good for Large-Breasted Women.

The best bra for big breasts, whether you are looking for a DD-cup bra or beyond, may seem impossible to find. If you're a well endowed woman, you are probably looking for extra support, comfortable straps, or something to hold you in in all the right places. Sometimes it seems the only solution is to buy expensive special order or custom bras. Rest assured, the big breasted among us can find comfortable and beautiful bras designed to play up our best assets. 

Styles of Bras Made for Support a Comfort

Many women agree that Playtex has topped the world of comfortable bras and makes the absolute best value bra for big breasts. Whether you need a d-cup bra or even a DD-cup bra (or bigger), Playtex has plenty of inexpensive models to choose from. The cross-your heart bra has received plenty of attention from women around the world. Many rave about the comfort straps and other features that makes it stand out from traditional underwire bras.

Minimizer Bras

Some women with large breasts claim that minimizer bras are great for taming the ta-ta's. Unfortunately, these bras tend to have cutting straps and despite their ability to offer plenty of support, the hurtful cutting straps keep women away from buying them again. Thankfully, Bali has a full line of top-rated minimizer bras that are also extremely comfortable. The Bali Woman's Passion for Comfort minimizer bra has features like a silky lining for modesty that doesn't add bulk and comfortable padded straps. While slightly more expensive that Playtex bras, Bali products can often be found for less than $30. 

Cacique Bras

For women who don't mind paying more for a high quality product, the best bra for big breasts by far is made by Cacique, a lingerie line sold at popular Lane Bryant plus size stores. While Playtex and Bali make comfortable bras, they are definitely lacking in style. Cacique is a plus size lingerie line that emphasises form as much as function. In addition to traditional full coverage bras, Cacique offers sexy options like balconettes, plunge bras, and even push-up bras for big breasts! Add feminine details like lace, embroidery, satin, ruffles, bows and cute prints, and any size woman can feel like a sex kitten. Of course, all these details come at a price. Most Cacique bras cost over $30 and some even come closer to $50.

Get Fitted for a Plus Size Bra

Shopping for a large cup size bra is best done in person and not online unless you already know the brand, size and model that best fits you. Begin with the more budget friendly options and work your way up in price until you find something right for you. Most department stores will offer a free bra fitting performed by a trained sales associate. If you haven't had a fitting in the last year or so, it's a good idea to get one since breast tissue changes as we age, have children, or go through periods of weight gain or loss. It's worth paying a few extra dollars to buy a bra at a place that offers fittings, especially if you want to get a perfect fit. Once you know what works for you, you can look for better prices at big-box stores and online. Be sure to try a bra on if it is from a new brand or line since sizes vary from one manufacturer to another.

About the author

My name is Stephanie and I am a mother of a daughter, Cali. She is almost 3 years old and I love her to pieces even when she makes my hair fall out from stress! HAHA. I love to read and write, cook, especially desserts and those hefty meals needed to fill the belly of my fiance. Not to mention the designing of meals and snacks my picky toddler likes to eat!


I grew up on a farm in Southern Illinois, therefore, I love animals and I currently own a 90 pound white boxer who is cuddly and clumsy. I have a large oscar fish named SpitFyre (from a book). I took an extra year of required english study, including journalism and creative writing. I'm also a published poet, 3 times over, since the age of 12 years old (said to write at 12th grade level while in 5th grade). I love to write because I have a talent for it. I won the state spelling be when I was in 5th grade and I have not stopped being fascinated with grammar and the world of writing ever since.
